Have any of you seen the movie North? Roger Ebert said, “North is a bad film – one of the worst movies ever made” (and Siskel agreed). I sheepishly admit that I liked it. It’s about a kid who sues his parents so that he can be a free agent and have potential new parents try to woo him. I think the reason that so many people found the movie so distasteful was that North, the main character, has an exceptionally good life–and this makes light of the fact that there are so many real-life kids who really could use legal help to get out of truly terrible situations. Luckily, there’s a real-life organization to help them. It’s called the Juvenile Law Center. They are a Philadelphia, PA based non-profit that “plays a leadership role nationally and in Pennsylvania in shaping and using the law on behalf of children in the child welfare and justice systems to promote fairness, prevent harm, secure access to appropriate services, and ensure a smooth transition from adolescence to adulthood.”

Justice for Juveniles

Most of the kids that the Juvenile Law Center serves are between the ages of 10 and 21–the ages where you have to bear some responsibility for your actions but you’re not an adult yet. The goal is to “enforce and promote the rights and well-being” of these kids when they “come into contact with the justice, child welfare and other public systems.” That’s why the JLC’s current initiatives include Minimizing Court and Systems Involvement, Promoting Fairness in the Courts, Improving Outcomes for Court-Involved Youth, and Ensuring Access to Services and Opportunities. The JLC also has an extensive docket of litigation that they’re partaking in on behalf of kids. If standing up for kids in jeopardy sounds like rewarding work to you, visit the JLC’s Careers page. Right now they’re looking for a Communications and Marketing Associate and a Development Associate.
